Sweet Basil Herb Garden in Recycled Coffee Container

Cole and I picked up a sweet basil starter kit in the dollar aisle at Target a few weeks ago in an effort to bring a little more green into our home and try out some fresh herbs. Cole's been getting into cooking a bit, and basil just so happens to be one of his favorite flavors.

We followed the directions on the starter kit package, and we had to transplant our ever-growing herb babies today.

When looking for a planting pot, we went for recycled. As part of our household economic awareness campaign, I've switched from Starbucks to Folgers; it's a little cheaper, and the coffee is just fine. The super-cool thing about the switch is that Folgers now comes in recyclable plastic containers (red no less!!), which is what we decided to use for our basil babies.
